HEIDENHAIN DNC: for vertical integration of the shop floor
The HEIDENHAIN DNC interface (option 18) ensures the vertical integration of a machine tool equipped with a HEIDENHAIN control in the company network. This makes HEIDENHAIN DNC the centerpiece of Connected Machining, which is also used to connect the StateMonitor software.
Using HEIDENHAIN DNC to digitally connect a machine tool to the company network makes it possible to automatically exchange machine data, operating data, and tool data between the HEIDENHAIN control and the following participants:
- Machine- and operating-data acquisition systems (MDA/PDA)
- Higher-level ERP/MES systems
- ERP systems
- Production-activity control systems
- CAD and CAM systems
- Simulation tools
- Tool-management systems
- Automation solutions
- And many more
Easy to implement
To enable you to use the HEIDENHAIN DNC software interface, HEIDENHAIN offers the RemoTools SDK software development package. RemoTools SDK provides a Microsoft COM component for the development environments on Windows operating systems in order to make communication with the HEIDENHAIN control possible. During the installation of RemoTools SDK the COM component is registered in the Windows operating system.
